“Because this world is, in fact, a living being endowed with soul and intelligence. That is to say, a unique and tangible entity that, in turn, contains all living beings in the universe, which by their own nature are interconnected with each other.” (Plato, Timaeus 29-30)

Poets and musicians have sung of the longing for fusion and transcendence of the human being. Many songs arise from the desire for a response, religious or not, to the existential doubt that accompanies us. Anima Mundi, a concept we already find in Plato as a vital force present in the universe and underlying in nature, hints at a subconscious relationship between the macrocosm and the microcosm. Between the universe and the forces that govern the human being.
